Provo Feeling Great About Huntington Prep Move
Published by Ali Ahmed on October 19, 2011
Before heading down south, Provo attended Pickering High (Pickering, Ontario) playing for the successful Trojans squad.
“It’s going good man, team’s looking good, good coaches, it’s nice,” described Provo of his premature experience at the prep school.
Provo’s transfer over to Huntington Prep increases the number of Canadians on the team to 6 players currently. The team features some highly touted Canadian prospects such as Negus Webster-Chan (Missouri commit), Andrew Wiggins (6’7, SF, 2014), Stefan Jankovic (6’10, PF, 2012), Xavier Rathan-Mayes (6’3, SG, 2013), and Tanveer Bhullar (7’2, C, 2013).
“It just makes the transition a whole lot easier, having guys you know, coming from the same place as you, and facing the adversity as you. It just makes you a lot more comfortable”
At his age, Provo can penetrate off the dribble on his way to the hoop and has the ability to finish at the rim with harm. His midrange shot is above average and can knock down the outside shot easily if given the slightest bit of space. From what we’ve seen from his play, Provo balances his offense with his defense as well. He defends and looks to make stops aggressively.
It’s a move which comes early in the youngster’s career but comes very timely as well. The current Huntington Prep roster consists of 7 seniors, many of which will leave to their respective colleges next year.
“It was a great fit for me, and they have a lot of guys leaving next year so coming early gives me the chance to develop this year and then step into a major role for the years to come. Having the ability to be completely focused and the opportunity to play against some major players early will help me become the player I want to become.”
As you can see, Provo seems determined to get a head start on his development and rise his stock. He is definitely a player to keep on your radar as he grows under Coach Rob Fulford and the prestigious Huntington Prep program.
